Allen West open to possibility of challenging Marco Rubio in Republican primary

In an interview on Washington, D.C.’s WMAL 105.9 FM “Mornings on the Mall” radio show on Wednesday, former Florida Republican Rep. Allen West inidcated that he might be open to challenging Sen. Marco Rubio in a 2016 GOP Senate primary.

“That’s a pretty heavy lift, because you’re talking about running against a sitting senator, and then, of course, that creates that schism that the other side would love to see happen,” West, who has ruled out a 2014 run, told host Larry O’Connor.

West, who said he wanted to “serve this country in whatever capacity I possibly can,” explained that his frustration with Rubio stemmed from the possible GOP presidential candidate’s support of the current immigration reform bill, which is currently being debated in the Senate.

I would vote for Mr. West anytime. He is true American conservative. Rubio is just plain phony bologna. West will not sell out like Rubio has. Time to rally tea party and back Mr. West

Right-on for Allen West ! He has backbone, has served this nation honorably, and tells it like it is. We need him and more like him as fast as possible.

When I was in the navy the Chief who ran the  SP always warned me not to turn my back on a Cuban with a knife !

He was a Big black Master Chief from South La.  who know about knives and such

He has so many hash marks on his sleeve he looked like a zebra

Reminds me of Alan West too.

I would vote for him too.

Yeah i would support him,but like the article said,he's ruled out a 2014 run,which means he ain't gonna be around soon enough to help us. I just love it when these guys talk a big game but then don't run. i'm in Indiana,and the only reason i don't run is because these days you gotta either be rich,or have some rich backers and i ain't either one.

Only one thing wrong with  Lt. Col. West 

He wore Green instead of Blue "LOL" 

But you did note the jump metal !  so he is good people even if he was Regular Army

Col. West, the thought of you running against Rubio  is like a symphony to my ears. I for one will back you all the way, God Bless and thank you.

Mr. West, if I still lived in Florida, I'd be proud to call you my Senator.  I now regret voting for Rubio...he didn't show his true colors.  I wish we had someone like you in eastern Iowa. Thank-you for your service, Donna Jones

I think the only time Col Allen West has experienced defeat was through typical illegal voting this 2012

I liked Col West the moment I first heard him speak back in 2007. He is informed extremely intelligent and understands and knows how our government, the Constitution and DC all work  I would vote for Allen West over Rubio any day!

West and Cruz will restore America to its full greatness. Remember to keep your enemies close...put Pelosi and Reid in charge of WH waste disposal (latrine duty).

 Rafael ,    Reid & Pelosi could find their true calling in that shi* at the White House .

Able to shift positions faster than a speeding bullet ,its a bird ,its a plane , no it's Mr. Amnesty Marko Rubio , Biggest DISAPOINTMENT I'v had lately politically WHAT A TURNCOAT . I would vote for Mr. Allen West in a heart beat he is a true American patriot and not  { Gee what can I  B.S. e'm with so I can get their vote like Rubio } Allen West would be a breath of fresh air. Hope he becomes my next Senator .

I too would vote for West.  I would vote for anyone who runs against Rubio.  If the Government wants to secure our borders they need only to implement the Laws Passed in 86. If they can do that they will actually get the people to believe in them again.  Are we too broke?  It’s too expensive?  I'll mail you a brick.  If everyone who wants secure borders sends a brick to congress we could build the fence in a couple of months.  Use illegal emigrants to do the labor.  That way it will be cheaper and we can find them when it’s done. Round up and deport the rest.  They are criminals.  What?  The baby thing?  All babies born to illegal emigrants are of the nationality of their parents, not US citizens.  Yes there should be fines.  It will help cover the deportation costs. Did they buy property?  Eminent Domain them.  Sell the property and use the money to deport them.  Criminals can't reap the rewards of their miss-deeds.  You see we do have Laws.  The government is not using them.  To further their own gains and those of Obama they allow Mr. Delusional to Presidential Decree them into oblivion.  Democrats only think of the votes, not the people and not the USA.  

Please remember Germany.  Where are their politicians of WW II?

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
